Smoke rising?



I looked out across our valley in the Jerusalem Hills  and my heart sank!
It looked like smoke rising.
The last thing we want in our moshav on a hill surrounded by forest is a fire.

But there was also the noise of an  all-terrain vehicle going full speed.
I could not spot the ATV but I watched and finally saw that  clouds of dust (not smoke) were following the route of the twisting dirt road.
What a relief!

Once in a while also a noisy ATV can be a relief...

I'm not so sure it's great to have that ATV there either although it is better than smoke.

Much better than a fire.

Fires have been a nightmare in Portugal this summer. It seems it's getting worse and worse every year!

Good grief, not again fire! We had our share as well this year, the worst year ever so far.
